Langtang Valley Trek - 10 Days

LANGTANG REGION

Langtang is a narrow valley that lies just south of the Tibetan border. It is sandwitched between the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. Langtang Lirung (7246 m.) dominates the valley to the north. Gang Chhenpo (6388 m.) and Naya Kangri (5846 m.) lie to the south; and Dorje Lakpa (6966 m.) protects the east end of the valley.

A visit to the Langtang Valley offers an opportunity to explore villages, to climb small peaks and to visit glaciers at a comfortably low elevation. As there are moderate climbing excursions here, a few extra days for exploration of the extensive glacier system is highly recommended.

LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY

It entirely depends upon your level of fitness and ditermination because at some point trekking can become strenuous as we gain elevation. The highest point on this trek is 5334 m. Nevertheless, if you are physically and mentally fit, you can enjoy this trek like all the other participants.

TRAVEL

You can either choose to take the 8-hour bus ride to Langtang from Kathmandu or, rent a private jeep for an additional cost that can cut the travel time to 5 hours.

FOOD AND ACCOMMODATION

On your way to trek, there are trekkers’ hotel (Guest Lodges), most are adequate and some are outstanding, that provide good accommodation and a appreciable choice of prepared meals. However, it is highly advisable to bring your own sleeping bag, as during the peak season, most lodges are crammed beyond their capacity, in case everything is full and you are forced to sleep on a floor and it can get very cold at higher altitudes.

Langtang valley now rebuilding after the 2015 earthquake, has exquisite mountain views and scenes along with Tamang Culture, a range of flora and fauna, and relatively low number of tourists keeping it clean!

One can see snowcapped peaks from the first day of the trek, and you will see glaciers up close too.

If you are an experienced mountaineer, there are a few peaks you can attempt too: Yala Peak (5500 metres) that can be climbed in two days with one night camping, or Naya Kanga (which is more technical and requires a permit), are just two of the most common ones.
